East End Cobblestones

by lucy wilson,

The construction crew have uncovered some original cobblestones on Pier Street as part of the City of Perth’s East End Revitalisation project.

More than 1000 stones from the 1920s or earlier are now in safe storage, with hopes to re-use them in the East End Revitalisation Project.

Fiona Hook from Archae-Aus says while commonly referred to as ‘cobblestones’, these stones appear to have been cut or dressed in a quarry and are not naturally shaped cobblestones.
